Great Watch, could be a better band

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased this watch for use hiking, coaching and everyday wear. Quality watch, very easy to read, doesn't seem to fog with extreme humidity. Is very sturdy and simple, but the leather band doesn't have much stretch, so until I break it in a bit, it is either too tight or too loose. Hopefully in a couple months it will be perfecto.

So just a follow up on my prior review. With this watch and the leather band, it took a little while to break in, but now the band fits great. It is still running awesome since my last post in 2012. It has survived surprise downpours in Southern Utah, countless summer hiking and camping trips in Wyoming and around Northern Utah. It has even sat in my touring pack during ski trips, including a 3 day trip in Colorado. I like to keep it in the pack just in case, but don't pull it out much. This means that water, humidity, extremely dry and dusty conditions, fine grain Moab sand, and bitter cold don't seem to effect this watch. Haven't had to change the batteries or replace the band. I wear it to the office most days, and take it with me on weekend adventures. Great watch if you want something dependable.
